The Benefits of Flow

Your outdoor space should be a direct reflection and continuation of your indoor space. You can still create an outdoor oasis and use different colors, but you don’t want the design change to be drastic. A balanced design will make your home appear larger, help it stand out and add curb appeal and value.

Creating Balance

Walkways- A beautifully designed pathway is a vital part of creating flow from the curb to the door. Walkways keep guests safe and create a visual point for eyes to follow from your curb. Already have one? Upgrade it with some flowers or lamps.

Add a Patio:  If you don’t already have a patio, adding one will not only create more entertainment space, it will also greatly increase the value of your home.  Designing a patio that feels like an extension of your home will increase the appeal.

Additions and Upgrades!

Already have a patio? Add accents that complement your home and enhance your lifestyle. These additions will complete your home and help designs flow from inside to outside. Consider some of these upgrades:

  • Ambient lighting– Provide lighting that is soothing and soft, not overly bright. Lights should be aimed where they won’t shine in the eyes of guests or glare. Don’t forget to light pathways for safety. Use lighting accents that match or complement the other light fixtures outside your home.
  • Wet Bar- A wet bar is the perfect addition to any patio. Considerate, convenient and cool, wet bars give you the opportunity to take care of guests and spend time with them.
  • Fire Places– An outdoor fireplace really upgrades your backyard patio. During summer, you can use them to roast marshmallows and hot dogs. As the weather turns chilly, use your fireplace to stay warm and cozy.
  • Heaters– It may sound odd in the middle of summer, but a good space heater can really extend the use of your patio or deck. Install permanent heaters or mobile space heaters and keep enjoying your favorite spot all year round. Have the heaters placed as part of the décor or find subtle ways to blend them into the area.

Beautiful Designs Throughout Your Home and Yard

Follow similar styles, materials, and colors throughout your home. Change things up, but don’t go too far off the design of your home.  For example, for classic homes don’t go too modern on the outside. Use designs that will enhance and compliment the original beauty of your home.
